Rated 3 out of 5★ by SuzieBB Not worth it We bought this for our daughter when I was still pregnant with her. At first it worked great, but there's a few kinks. First, depending on the age of the child, you have to either pull their ear back, or up to get the right temp. And with 5 people in the house, I forget who goes up and who goes back, so I'm constantly pulling out the directions. The plastic covers get dirty with ear wax or whatever, and that will mess up the reading. Also if it's not snapped on good enough, it wont read right. There's been a few times where I've thrown out the plastic cover, put the thermometer back in the cabinet only for it to get dirty on the sensor, and when I put another cover on later on, it wont register right. So I'll have to go back and clean it. And you want to make sure the tip is pressed tightly onto the sensor.It's now been a year and the thing wont read right no matter what we do.We have to take 3 readings in each ear and then just average them out and hope that's right. I'll definitely be getting a forehead one as soon as possible! 11/13/2010
Rated 2 out of 5★ by JKay Very unaccurate The readings completely depend on how exactly you put it in - how far, what angle and overall position, and are always different in both ears. Now matter how I try the reading have 1-2 degrees difference.Plus, you have to have a new filter every time, which becomes very expensive during a few days while sick. 10/16/2009
Rated 4 out of 5★ by Denturn It works EXTRA fast! I wonder how it works so fast! But, the readings sure seem accurate, so I'm happy. I just get confused as to when to put it in the ear and what beeps to listen for. 02/25/2013
Rated 4 out of 5★ by sedonakaren Braun Thermoscan thermometer A bit more difficult to use than one might think. Directions in booklet are NOT correct. When I called the 800 number for assistance two different times, I got two completely different answers, and neither was the one in the book. At $40, I would think it would be idiot proof and easy to use. 08/08/2013
